These spicy maple candied almonds are addictive. Eat as a snack with a drink, or chop and add to salads for flavor and crunch. They happen to be vegan and when nicely packaged make a nice gift.
I love the spicy caramel popcorn from my second cookbook and wanted to capture the essence of that recipe with this almond.
Cinnamon, cumin, parica, salt and cayenne are the spices added to these almonds. To finish, garnish with chopped rosemary.
Almonds are coated in maple-flavoured caramel and finished with warm spices and fresh rosemary. I used sugar to make caramel and added a little maple syrup for flavor.
This brings in heat, so only a hint of cayenne is added, but if you want it spicier, add more.
Working with sugar can be tricky, so you have to follow the steps and this recipe can be made without a sugar thermometer.
How to make spicy maple candied almonds
- First, weigh all the ingredients and finely chop the rosemary.
- Place sugar, maple syrup, and water in a heavy medium-sized saucepan.
- Boil this until the sugar dissolves and it thickens a little. This takes about 5 minutes.
- Raw almonds are then added and cooked over the caramel until they finally set and crystallize.
- At this point, put it on low heat until the sugar dissolves again.
- Once the sugar has dissolved again, add all the spices and rosemary and tilt onto a lined baking sheet to cool.
- Place them in a sealed jar and sprinkle with extra salt if desired.
